        Anna Karenina

      The first English edition, published in Vizetelly's series of One Volume Novels, differing slightly from the Nathan Dole translation of a year earlier. The book is bound in the publisher's blue cloth, which has been re-backed, preserving the majority of the spine cloth, with the original patterned endpapers retained, the boards are stained, rubbed and bumped and the spine is faded and darkened, with the lettering only discernible upon close inspection. The text block is toned and slightly stained, with some foxing and also minor damage to some page edges, to the front paste-down is the armorial bookplate of Annie Freeman and the gutters have been neatly repaired, to the rear of the book is the 32 page publisher's catalogue, dated September 1886. A decidedly uncommon edition, featuring an introductory essay on the subject of Tolstoy and his works, emphasizing their potential to be morally edifying to the Victorian reader.

        Die Barrikaden" - "Zur Ägyptischen Finsternis". Original Tuschezeichnung unter beigem Schrägschnittpassepartout.

      (Im weißen Rand minimale Verfärbungen von einer früheren Montage, sonst gut.) "Klaus Carl Friedrich Richter (geb. 25. Januar 1887 in Berlin gest. 3. Januar 1948 ebenda) war ein deutscher Maler und Schriftsteller. Richter war Sohn eines Arztes und studierte in Mailand und München Philosophie und Sprachen, bevor er sich der Malerei zuwandte. In Paris studierte er anatomisches Zeichnen bei seinem Onkel Robert Richter und wurde dann Schüler von Lovis Corinth in Berlin, wo er auch die Bekanntschaft von Magnus Zeller machte, mit dem er ab 1911 ein gemeinsames Atelier unterhielt. Ebenfalls ab 1911 stellte Richter bei der Berliner Sezession aus. Gleichzeitig arbeitete er auch als Schriftsteller, war ein Jahr lang Schauspieler bei Max Reinhardt und schuf Bühnenbilder für den frühen Stummfilm. Ab 1919 lehrte er an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Berlin-Charlottenburg, 1922 wurde er dann Professor an der Kunstakademie Königsberg, wo er auch an der Universität Vorlesungen hielt. Ab 1927 war er Professor an der Berliner Hochschule für Bildende Künste.Er war ab 1929 Mitglied und von 1937 bis zu seiner Absetzung durch Joseph Goebbels 1940 sowie 1946/47 Vorsitzender des Vereins Berliner Künstler. 1940 erhielt er den Auftrag, ein Porträt von Hermann Göring anzufertigen, das allerdings nie abgeliefert wurde. Bei den Sitzungen in der Wolfsschanze entstand auch ohne Auftrag sein künstlerisch bemerkenswertes Porträtgemälde von Adolf Hitler (1941), das in zwei nahezu identischen Versionen erhalten ist. Das Werk stellt den Diktator jenseits der offiziellen Propaganda apathisch und zusammengesunken mit leerem Blick dar. (...) Zu seinen Schülern zählte unter anderen Rudi Lesser." (vgl. Wikipedia).Original-Tuschezeichnung von Klaus Richter auf dünnem Papier, signiert und datiert 1917 im unteren Bildrand rechts, links unten im Bild bezeichnet: "Zur Ägyptischen Finsternis" und unter dem Bild im weißen Rand benannt: "5.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Oscar Wilde"), 21 October 1887, to Edith Nesbit, as editor of The Woman's World, requesting "a sonnet or short lyric" poem from her

      London, 1887. Two pages in ink across a single sheet of letterhead of La Belle Sauvage, Ludgate Hill. 1 vols. 8vo. A few small smudges, two pinholes in outer margins away from text. Very good plus. Recipient identified in pencil at foot, "Miss Nesbit". Two pages in ink across a single sheet of letterhead of La Belle Sauvage, Ludgate Hill. 1 vols. 8vo. A choice Wilde letter in his capacity as a discerning editor at the center of the London literary world. "He was the best-dressed man in Cassell's" (Richard Ellmann, Oscar Wilde, 1988). Reading in part, "I am very much gratified at your kind permission to add your name to my list of contributors …" Wilde was named editor of the Cassell journal The Lady's World in May 1887 and immediately proposed changing the title to The Woman's World. For the next two years he energetically recruited fiction and non-fiction contributions from a wide range of authors; he himself contributed a regular column of "Literary and other Notes" to each issue. As Ellmann observes, Wilde's own contributions "were gracious, informative, and amusing; his name attached to them was a selling point" (293). Edith Nesbit, who had published a book of verse, Lays and Legends (1886), contributed two poems to Woman's World: "The Christmas Roses" in the issue for December 1888; and "The Soul to the Ideal" in the issue for July 1889. She made her name as an author of children's books a decade later, beginning with The Story of the Treasure Seekers: Being the Adventures of the Bastable Children in Search of a Fortune (1899), Five Children and It (1902), and The Railway Children (1906). In October 1889 Wilde resigned as editor of the journal; without his energies, contributions dwindled, circulation fell, and publication ceased in 1890. Not in The Complete Letters; apparently unpublished

First US edition, perhaps with precedence over the UK edition of the same year. Matthews left Britain in 1864 as surgeon on the Tugela, an emigrant ship. On arrival he managed to obtain the post of District Surgeon of Victoria County, Natal. In 1871 he proceeded to the diamond fields, having already sent up an advance party under the geologist G.J. Lee, later Chairman of the Kimberley Mining Board, to work the mines. "The author was for many years closely identified with every social and political movement on the Fields, and his description of the diamond fields, and his references to the "Illicit Diamond Trade," are particularly interesting. There are particulars of "The Kimberley Company and Share Mania of 1881," "The Early History of the Diamond Fields," "An Account of the Black Flag Riot," together with sketches of the author's adventures in Basutoland, Swaziland, and the Transvaal, where he eventually settled" (Mendelssohn).

        The Recollections of a Glasgow Detective Officer: with special experiences of human nature.

      London: Simpkin, Marshall & Co., Edinburgh and Glasgow: John Menzies & Co., 1887(?) - Octavo. Original presentation binding of red "shingles"-patterned padded cloth, single line gilt border on sides, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Pencilled ownership inscription of "A. Jardine" on verso of front free endpaper; spine toned, a few marks to covers, scattered light foxing. A very good copy in the attractive - albeit rather vulnerable - presentation binding. Second edition, the title page verso carrying "press notices of first edition". With fine engraved presentation label presenting this copy to "William C. Coghill Esqr". William Calder Coghill (1835-1914), printer and publisher, co-founder of Aird & Coghill Ltd ("letterpress and lithographic printers") was a prominent figure in Glasgow philanthropic circles: he was a founder member of the Scottish Prohibition Society (1856), a director of The Glasgow Northern Highland Benevolent Society, a member of the Royal Philosophical Society of Glasgow and a director of the Victoria Infirmary at its establishment in 1888. Thomas P. McNaught was a detective with the Glasgow police force and his slim book focuses on what we would now call "human interest" stories, concluding with "Barmaids and fascinating fellows"; it is also cited as an early example of the police memoir: "Gradually. men who served as detectives in the police force of in Britain also began to write their memoirs, although few saw print before Sherlock Holmes made his appearance in the latter 1880s" (Emsley & Shpayer-Makov eds., Police Detectives in History, 1750-1950, 2006, p. 109). Remarkably scarce in commerce and institutionally: of this second edition Copac cites only the copy at Glasgow among British and Irish institutional libraries, with copies of the first edition at only three locations (BL, Cambridge, Scotland); OCLC adds only one copy worldwide (Museumsgesellschaft Zurich).

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden).

        Capital: A Critical Analysis of Capitalist Production

      1887. First Edition . MARX, Karl. Capital: A Critical Analysis of Capitalist Production. London: Swan Sonnenschein, 1887. Two volumes. Octavo, original gilt-stamped burgundy cloth recased. Housed together in a custom clamshell box. $17,000.First edition in English of the first part of Marx’s landmark Das Kapital, the only part published in his lifetime, containing substantial revisions made by Marx for the first French translation, this two-volume work edited by Engels and translated from the third German edition. A very scarce and important printing of a seminal work in economic and political thought.Expelled from Paris in 1844, from Brussells in 1848, and from Cologne in 1849, Karl Marx moved to London where, with the loyal financial support of Frederick Engels, he endured hunger, the deaths of three children and his wife's nervous breakdown, spending most of the next two decades in the British Museum, immersed in research for his great historical analysis of capitalism. ""Marx himself modestly described Das Kapital as a continuation of his Zur Kritik des Politischen Oekonomie, 1859. It was in fact the summation of his quarter of a century's economic studies… The 'Athenaeum' reviewer of the first English translation (1887) later wrote: 'Under the guise of a critical analysis of capital, Karl Marx's work is principally a polemic against capitalists and the capitalist mode of production, and it is this polemical tone which is its chief charm.' The historical-polemical passages, with their formidable documentation from British official sources, have remained memorable; and, as Marx… wrote to Engels while the volume was still in the press, 'I hope the bourgeoisie will remember my carbuncles all the rest of their lives.' Carbuncles, financial embarrassment and political preoccupations of many kinds hampered Marx's work on Das Kapital, which he would never have completed but for the material and moral support of Engels…"" (PMM 359). ""In his funeral eulogy for Karl Marx, Engels concluded that 'Marx was above all a revolutionary… It is doubtful that any figure in history has inspired more violently contradictory opinions than Karl Marx"" (Downs, 22). ""Only this first part of Marx's magnum opus appeared in his lifetime,"" with its publication in German in 1867 (PMM 359). The remainder was constructed by Engels from Marx's posthumous papers. Containing Marx's central concept of surplus value, this first edition in English is translated from the third German edition of Moore and Aveling, is edited by Engels and incorporates substantial revisions Marx made for the first French translation (1872-5). Although Engels published the German edition of volume II in 1885, his preface notes that a translation of it without volume III was necessarily incomplete; the German edition of volume III did not appear until 1894. Draper II:M129; ST/M5. Bookplates of Manchester Reform Club with penciled notations.Interiors very fresh with only a few leaves roughly opened, closed tear to one leaf (I:337) expertly repaired, light expert restoration to original cloth.

        Topografia del Maso Cantanghel presso Civezzano.

      1887. Acquerello e china su carta pesante di cm 60x70. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo. I veri e propri cabrei, raccolta di mappe catastali che nel disegno particolareggiato riescono a visualizzare in modo pratico le proprietà terriere e i beni immobili, risalgono ad un'epoca più tarda; la produzione più copiosa ed artistica si ebbe nel Settecento, quando le teorie illuministiche dettero un particolare impulso ad ogni pratica che consentisse di razionalizzare la gestione e l'amministrazione della cosa pubblica e privata. I proprietari terrieri, gli enti religiosi e le amministrazioni comunali avvertivano l'esigenza di inventariare le proprietà, fissare i confini, descrivere le strade poderali, i diritti di servitù, l'estensione dei boschi, dei pascoli e dei campi coltivati, le costruzioni coloniche disseminate sul territorio, i corsi d'acqua e quanto altro potesse tornare utile alla gestione del bene in questione. Sono documenti oggi preziosi per studiare e seguire le profonde trasformazioni del paesaggio agricolo e del territorio toscano. Nell'Ottocento, la nascita e l'entrata in funzione del Catasto particellare toscano, voluto dal Governo napoleonico e proseguito da Ferdinando III, portò al declino di questa vera e propria arte, che oggi Paquito Forster ha riscoperto e rinnovato in un atto puramente estetico e quasi totalmente svincolato dalle esigenze pratiche per cui il genere è sorto. Ogni suo lavoro è frutto di ricerche sul territorio, negli archivi dei privati e delle realtà locali dove il paesaggio è il protagonista ed è visto attraverso la sua storia e il suo attuale sviluppo come soggetto in continua evoluzione per l'intervento dell'uomo e per azione della natura stessa. MOLTO RARO E PEZZO UNICO. SI SEGNALANO SEGNI DI RESTAURO E MANCANZE, SI VENDE IN CORNICE. Al piede data e firma: Civezzano nel marzo 1887 - Egidio Filippi 1887.

        Ancient Egypt or Mizraim

      1887. First Edition . BINION, Samuel Augustus. Ancient Egypt or Mizraïm. Profusely illustrated with fine engravings and colored plates by the best artists, from the works of L'Expedition de l'Egypte, Lepsius, Prisse d'Avennes, &c., &c. New York: Henry G. Allen, (1887).

Most of the huge plates are based on one of four major volumes of Egyptian travel and antiquities from the Napoleonic era through the mid-19th century: David Roberts’ Egypt and the Holy Land, Prisse d’Avennes’ Oriental Album, Lepsius’ Denkmaler aus Agypten und Athiopen, and the Napoleon-commissioned Description de l’Egypte.

        Autograph Letter Signed while Supreme Court Justice, on personal stationery, 8vo, Washington, D. C. , Sunday ca 1940s

      - Frankfurter writes to prominent historian Samuel Eliot Morison referring to his article on Horatio Nelson. Morison (1887-1976) was a a highly regarded prolific and popular historian of maritime and American history. Commenting on Morison's article about British Naval war hero Horatio Nelson, Frankfurter writes, "Having just read your Nelson piece in the London Observer (gaily supplemented by H. Nicolson's conjugal account of the hero), I want to thank you for the pleasure of it." The jurist quotes the complimentary remark he made to his wife, Marion, and notes his early interest in maritime history having read "Mahan. " This is a reference to Admiral Alfred Thayer Mahan (1840 - 1914), who was a US naval officer and naval historian. Frankfurter continues, "you, above all, honored my interest in , and enlightened my mind, in so far as I have interest in and an am enlightened on matters naval." In testimony to their friendship, Frankfurter signs his letter to Morison simply, "Felix." A warm letter reflecting Frankfurter's maritime interests. Condition: sight bump in paper near left edge not affecting text and fine for presentation.

        Fine unsigned Tableau Vivant 'Flash Light' Photograph representing 'Tales from the Arabian Nights' by Hughes & Mullins (1876-1936, Grand Duchess, wife of Grand Duke Kyril of Russia) with her cousins BEATRICE (Mary Victoria Feodore, 1857-1944, Princess, Daughter & Companion of Queen Victoria) & her husband Prince Henry Maurice of BATTENBERG (1858-1896, Colonel)]

      1887 - showing them dressed in Eastern costume, Henry is seated cross legged and the women are standing behind him, some appear to be tied together and the scene suggests a harem, stamped 'carbon print' on the verso, 10" x 8", no place, (Osborne, Isle of Wight) no date, c. It is interesting that Princess Victoria Melita is included as she always thought of the Queen as rather pampered and interfering and so she tried to spend as little time as possible in any of the Queen's homes. She was to be proved right personally as the Queen arranged a disastrous marriage for her with Ernest, Grand Duke of Hesse which ended in divorce in 1901, when 'Ducky' (her family nickname) ran off to Russia to find her true love with Grand Duke Cyril. The practice of the Household performing tableau vivants over the New Year was revived some time after the death of the Prince Consort. There were normally several scenes, each representing a letter or word, followed by a final scene depicting the entire word. The Tableau often reproduced paintings - a particularly successful one being 'La Rixe' (The Brawl) after the painting by E. Meissonier which had been given to the Prince Consort in 1856. The scene was a quarrel in a tavern which Queen Victoria considered 'a truthful presentation of the picture'. They were not always so well received - a biblical tableau of Naomi and Ruth in 1888 was described by the Queen as 'not quite so successful as it might have been, owing to the ladies getting the giggles and shaking'. The Tableau Vivant photo is an unusual form of photography, which Queen Victoria had a passion for from the 1850s. This is one of the later ones which are more difficult to find as the majority of them have remained in Royal Collections. From the collection of Lady Patricia Ramsay, daughter of the Duke of Connaught.

        THE WOODLANDERS (FINE COPY of the First Edition in Three Volumes)

      London: Macmillan, 1887. Hardy, Thomas. THE WOODLANDERS. London: Macmillan and Co, 1887. First Edition, first impression, one of only 1,000 copies published on March 15th, 1887. Three volumes, 8vo, original dark green pebbled publisher's cloth (the secondary binding with the leaf of out-of-date ads from volume one excised by the binder). A FINE, fresh, and untouched example with only the most minor of blemishes. A few corners are just lightly bumped, the spine gilt of Vol. 2 is just slightly less bright than the other two volumes, and there is one tiny nick to the spine tip of Vol. 3. The inner hinges are tight and sound; there is virtually none of the usual foxing. Armorial bookplates belonging to a previous owner are affixed to each volume's front paste-down. This is not one of the first 860 sets originally bound in green buckram-grain cloth in March of 1887 but part of a secondary binding-up in similarly colored pebble-grain cloth of the remaining 140 copies in sheets (which most likely occurred sometime before September of 1887 when Macmillan released its follow-up one volume edition of 2,000 copies). The first bound group went primarily to the lending libraries of Mudie and W. H. Smith which accounts for the generally atrocious condition of the few badly marked survivors which are more to be pitied than purchased. Purdy pp. 54-57. Housed in a new, custom slipcase. .
